Yah you are right after thinking about it. Normally goalies are super valuable in standard yahoo roto (4 of 10 stats) so I was downplaying their value here, but a category is a category.
Theoretically if his starter gets a shutout first game he could bench his goalie rest of season and guarantee himself probably 30/56 points (14 GAA, 14 S%, 1 W, 1 SHO) in the goalie category. Not sure if minimum games, but always thought about this.
